Perfect Go-To Royal Icing Recipe




Perfect Go-To Royal Icing Recipe

Today I am sharing with you my Perfect Go-To Royal Icing Recipe. I’ve incorporated many of the ingredients that will make it stable to hold up to textured designs, smooth to fill a cookie evenly and cleanly, and strong enough to hold it’s color without bleeding on your work.

I’ve been using this royal icing recipe for years and I’m sure you will find it to be an all-star! I used the royal icing pictured above to decorate the cookies shown below. This is my royal icing recipe that I use for all of my sugar cookie designs. This recipe can be thinned out by adding a bit of water to create a flood consistency or let thicken to create texture and dimension to your sugar cookie creations!

Directions:

Begin by measuring the meringue powder and adding it in with the powdered sugar.

Add the sugar and meringue powder to the bowl of your mixer and let it mix together. I do not sift the sugar, I just add it from the bag.

Add in the cream of tartar and salt.

Let it mix in the mixer on stir for a couple of seconds just to mix together well.

Oil-Free Extracts and Water

Add the water directly to the bowl of the mixer and let it stir on the lowest setting possible

The icing may look really thick, if it is too thick, I add only 1/8 more water and let it mix in well.

At this point, add in the corn syrup and white food coloring directly to the mixing bowl and let it mix.

It will look thick and creamy and smooth.
